According to Glazer, Whitworth’s ACL and tibia are intact, but he unfortunately has a torn MCL and PCL.

The plan is for Whitworth to undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of his knee injury.

Whitworth, 38, is a former second-round pick of the Bengals back in 2006. He spent 11 years in Cincinnati before signing a three-year, $33.75 million contract that included $15 million guaranteed with the Rams in 2017.

Whitworth made a base salary of $10.25 million for the 2019 season. The Rams brought him back on a three-year extension this past March. 

In 2020, Whitworth has appeared in nine games for the Rams and started all of them at left tackle.

We’ll have more regarding Whitworth as the news is available.
